The 5 Phases of a Multifamily Real Estate Syndication

Multifamily real estate syndication is an investment strategy that allows individual investors to pool their resources and collectively invest in larger-scale multifamily properties.

Through this investment strategy, you can diversify your investment portfolio and earn passive income along the way. 

The multifamily syndication process involves five key phases, from initial acquisition to the eventual exit strategy.

To help you fully understand the entire multifamily syndication process, this blog post will explore each phase in detail!

5 Key Phases of a Multifamily Real Estate Deal

  • Deal Sourcing and Acquisition

The first phase of any multifamily syndication is deal sourcing and acquisition.

At XSITE Capital, we use a strategic process to find the best properties within the best markets. This process includes examining the rent growth in the area, sales trends, employment opportunities and the supply to ensure that the market would be lucrative.

During this phase, our team conducts thorough market research to analyze various conditions so that we can fully assess and properly ensure that the property has positive financial ability. 

Once a suitable property is identified and researched, we begin negotiating the purchase price, securing financing and finalizing the acquisition.

  • Capital Raising and Investor Onboarding

Once we acquire the property, that’s where our investors come in!

In this stage, the syndicator, like XSITE Capital for example, presents the investment opportunity to their investor community by outlining the property’s key details, financial projections and expected returns.

Interested investors can then commit capital to the syndication, becoming limited partners in the venture.

As investors choose to be involved with the deal, the syndicator ensures proper legal documentation, subscription agreements and investor communications are in place before accepting capital contributions.

  • Property Management and Value-add Creation

Once all capital is raised for that specific deal, the syndicator can then transition into the property management and value-add creation phase.

During this stage, the syndicator oversees the day-to-day operations of the property, including tenant management, maintenance, rent collection and expense optimization.

This is one of the largest benefits for investors in multifamily deals because as an investor, you don’t have to be directly involved with any day-to-day operations when you partner with an investment group.

Instead, you invest your capital front, trust that the rest is taken care of for you and still get to reap the passive benefits.

In addition to the day-to-day operations of the property, syndicators also typically implement a value-add strategy, such as property renovations, amenity enhancements or operational improvements to increase the property’s value and rental income.

The syndicator’s goal during this phase is to enhance the property’s performance and generate attractive returns for all investors involved.

  • Ongoing Investor Communication and Reporting

Throughout the entire syndication, investors will receive ongoing communication and regular updates so that they are fully aware of what’s happening with the property and how it’s performing.

When you partner with an investment group like XSITE Capital, you can expect consistent communication that includes details about property performance, financial statements, occupancy rates and any significant developments or challenges.

  • Exit Strategy and Capital Distribution

The final phase of a multifamily syndication is the exit strategy and capital distribution.

This stage involves carefully planning and executing the syndicator’s strategy for selling the property and distributing profits.

The exit strategy may include selling the property outright, refinancing to access equity or executing a 1031 exchange to defer capital gains taxes.

Once the property is sold, the syndicator distributes the profits to the investors according to the terms outlined in the syndication agreement.

This phase marks the close of the investment and investors can choose to reinvest their returns into subsequent syndications or pursue other investment opportunities.
